Find the right lenses for you

Ophthalmic lens technology has advanced to cater the varying needs of visual correction. There are many types of spectacle lenses to choose from to fit the conditions of wearer’s activities. If you need a spectacle prescription, there are several factors to consider when choosing the right lenses for you; which types of lenses to pick, the materials they are made in, and some optional coatings to maximize the comfort when wearing.

The types of lenses you choose depend on whether you want the spectacles to suit all activities or single activity.

Single Vision Lens  

If you are under age 40 and need prescription glasses, then single vision lenses may be sufficient enough for your visual correction. Single vision lenses have the same focal power throughout the lens to provide a single focus.

Progressive Lenses (Multifocal Lenses)

Progressive lenses provide a gradual transition in power within the lens to view all distance from near at hand to far across the room. If you are in your 40s or older, wearing progressive lenses have an advantage to see all distances clearly without taking the eyeglasses off and on.

Transitions lenses help you see better today and tomorrow.


Transitions lenses are variable tint lenses. Indoors and at night, Transitions lenses stay as clear as regular clear lenses.
Outdoors, in the UV rays, they change tint to sunglass dark* in bright sunlight, reducing glare to help you see better. Transitions lenses also reduce eye fatigue as they constantly even out light variations. Your eyes will feel more comfortable all day long.
In addition, they block 100% of harmful UVA and UVB rays, helping to preserve your long term eye health.
Convenient? Transitions lenses automatically change tint as outdoor light conditions change, so you don’t have to change spectacles. The ideal choice for everyday
 

Polarized lenses do what no other lens or lens treatment can - block blinding glare. In addition, polarized lenses can enhance visual acuity, color contrast and visual comfort, and block 100% of harmful UVA (315 - 380 nm) and UVB (280 - 315 nm) light.
